Technical Account Manager
When you select Gold or Platinum support, Jive provides you with a named Technical Account Manager (TAM), who is your single point of contact for any issues, concerns or questions you have about Jive. Your TAM will meet with you frequently to ensure that all your needs and objectives are being met, that you get best possible service from Jive, and that your Jive implementation is successful.
Customers who have an active Support and Maintenance contract receive access to all updates and patches. Jive encourages customers to apply new releases to obtain the latest features and bug fixes.
Jive’s business hours are defined as 12:00 AM to 6:00 PM Pacific Time, Monday through Friday excluding holidays.
Customers on Jive’s legacy support agreements still have full support as agreed in the existing contracts. You can view the contracts here:
